Here is much to do with hate but more with love by William Shakespeare In the play Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare there are many emotions some powerful and some weak. The main themes in this play are love and hate between two families. Shakespeare has constructed this hate between Romeo and Juliet which are between two families. Love is represented by the relationship between Romeo and Juliet and the hate is represented by feud between the Montagues and the Capulets. Both emotions are extremely powerful in the play. Love is strong between Romeo and Juliet but hatred is still between them as they are from two different families. The death of Romeo and Juliet puts a conclusion to the hatred between the two families. The audience is shown that love will triumph at the end of the play. ...read more.

He does not want to fight and cries for help, his language to Tybalt is loving, trying to break his hate. Tybalt has too much hate in him to break him down Mercutio stands in to protect him. It was hatred from the two families which made Romeo and Juliet kill them because their families' hatred drove them to their deaths. After the deaths of Romeo and Juliet the Montague and Capulet families are reconciled. At the end of the play the prince says to the two families that there fighting was the cause of there deaths by saying"Capulet! Montague! See, what a scourge is laid upon your hate, that heaven finds means to kill your joys with love". I think that in the play love and hate are interwoven. ...read more.
